When it comes to travel, by and large, through my many (feeling old) years on earth, the only places I travel are those sitting on my bookshelf. As it’s rainy and rather dreary here for the past two days, it seems appropriate to have some fun and talk about favorite book places and settings.
Some of these places or settings are pretty basic and uninspiring. Others are more exciting! But either way, let’s have a little fun travelling around as we look at some of the locales that I can visit, right at my bookshelf. Away we go.

1: COUSINS BEACH from THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY
There’s a lot of states that, honestly, I really couldn’t care less about visiting (just because I don’t have the urge or there’s something about the state that personally I don’t want to become a tourist in) but more there’s a particular place I’d visit. A setting like Cousins Beach is one place I would like to visit! It just seems like a fun place to hang out. Amazon (Trilogy) | Goodreads
2: GREECE from LOVE & OLIVES
In addition to Jenna Evans Welch’s Love & Olives, part of this locale curiosity can be attributed to the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants movies. I don’t think I’d like long term stays here, but just to see the beauty once might be fun. Amazon | Goodreads
3: IRELAND from THERE YOU’LL FIND ME
I always thought Ireland looked so pretty in movies like Leap Year or As Luck Would Have It, but Jenny B. Jones YA novel There You’ll Find Me also takes place in the lush scenery country too! Amazon | Goodreads
4: MUIR HARBOR from AUTUMN BY THE SEA
Ok, so this add on is kind of a cheat since I haven’t read Melissa’s new series yet, but I love that this set will be set in a new location. Her prior books were all set in the same area, so it’ll be fun to read something new from her. Maine isn’t somewhere that’s HIGH on my personal list of place to see, but you know, I’m excited about it from Melissa’s books, and who knows, maybe I’ll become curious.

5: NANTUCKET from NANTUCKET LOVE STORY (SERIES)
Courtney Walsh’s novels set in Nantucket seem charming. I’m not one for small, slow town settings because I live that reality. So ideally, I like something different. But you know, sometimes, a book does make it sound pretty. Amazon | Goodreads
6: NARNIA from THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA
I mean, I would only want to visit when it’s pretty again and things are safe post the threat of a White Witch war! Sure the snow-y landscape is pretty but I hate winters, so yeah… only pretty Narnia will suffice! Amazon (digital film)
7: PEMBERLEY from PRIDE & PREJUDICE
I mean, this is kind of a given, right? I do own a copy of the novel, but as I haven’t read it, my opinion is based solely on the films. Also, I’m pretty sure I would want to visit it in modern times, and am not in the mood for a travel twist not unlike what happens in Lost in Austen. Amazon (digital film)
8: A ROYAL COURT from THE BETRAYED
There’s so much books that have a royal court, and really, I feel like it’s a short term, quick kind of visit for me because royal courts have scary possibilities! The most recent court setting book I read was The Betrayed. Amazon | Goodreads
